Persona Hitman, huh?

2020.11.21 16:37 Preston_of_Astora Persona Hitman, huh?

Disclaimer

I haven't played any Persona or Hitman title, but I Have made crossovers in the past. It's sort of my forte and through rigorous trial and error, I have changed from cringe to decent, to plausible crossovers, so if there's anything that can be crossed over, I could theoretically do it.
What made me make this post? Because I myself am making a crossover out of two conflicting games; The incredibly simple and linear Child of Light, and the Incredibly complex and unforgiving Dark Souls, specifically Souls 3. In essence, I am fundamentally doing what Alecks is doing.

Things to Consider

Iron Pineapple made a fantastic point of view for Remakes, Remasters, and Homages in his Demon's Souls Remake video. It can also apply for crossovers.
"Being Too faithful to a title, also means making the same mistakes the original did."
And a fellow Osana user also made a summary of Alex's thought process.
"Alex plays these games, he thinks they're fun, but he doesn't know what Made them fun to begin with."
With what Iron Pineapple said, a specific constraint occurs. You want to pay homage to Persona and Hitman, but you can't be too faithful otherwise, aside from DMCA strikes, you'd be bound to doing the same mistakes those titles did.
And you can only Really solve that issue if you Really understand the games you're inspired by. From my review of gameplay footage of both, Persona is more focused on the social aspect of the game, and Hitman is more focused on the freedom the game gives to it's players. Said freedom actually applies to Souls; if you wanna kill an NPC, you can, assuming you know what you're doing and accept the consequences of doing so.
That said, allow a guy who hasn't played a Persona or Hitman game give his opinion on how to make Persona Hitman work.

Persona

I'm personally rooting more for Persona on this one because it has more grasp on YanSim than Hitman; the art style, the social aspect, the characters, it can actually work.

Hitman

About Hitman, what I would prefer to take from this to use for YanSim is it's freedom, and combat system. If the Delinquents, Student Council, and even the fucking Stalker actually possess competent AI and fight Ayano in real time, that would pose more of a challenge rather than the Press A then X then C gameplay that we currently have.
On the other hand, freedom of choice can also apply, since there's a fuck ton of elimination methods, all varying in severity. To make each worthwhile, I suppose make each method have Pros and Cons; like straight up murder saves the most time and is the most straightforward, but it is also the most risky and requires patience and crowd control. Or matchmaking can prevent suspicion from others and is the safest, but it is the most tedious and time consuming to set up.
These factors define the player's choices in their playthrough and will make the game much more alive.

Closing Thoughts

As I have said, I don't pretend to know Exactly what to change, as I haven't played either games, but personally, it can all boil down to execution amd direction. If you know what you're going for, then go for it.

2020.11.21 10:26 cba_tbh_mate_honest Do not buy titanfall 1 on steam as it is a piece of completely broken and bordering on unplayable abandonware

in the honor of my favourite game of all time's corpse being paraded for money so its negligent developer can squeeze in the last bit of cash out of its dessicated corpse, i decided to compile all the old (AND NEW SOMEHOW) problems and bugs that make the game nigh unplayable
1) the steam version's audio installer doesn't work properly. you have to manually fix it by moving a file onto the audio installer's executable. yes, they are selling you a game they themselves couldn't be bothered to check can even be installed properly so we are off to an amazing start already
2) the game straight up fails to detect the DLCs half the time, resulting in you being unable to play the multiplayer (as in, the game)
3) custom games have a 50/50 chance of booting you off to the main menu when you attempt to start them most likely due to the extreme unstability of the servers, and speaking of
4) the servers somehow got worse since 2016 and even back then we had serious issues with direct hits straight up failing to register and random crashes
5) speaking of crashes, the guy that's going around randomly crashing the game's servers is still going meaning the developers didn't even care enough to make their anticheat not 100% worthless
and there's a myriad of other, more minor issues such as the weapon balance being non existent, matchmaking randomly throwing you into empty lobbies that no one ever joins, titans spontaneously combusting you dare to disembark in the wrong places and a ton of map bugs ranging from poor clipping that will stop your momentum to places where you can straight up leave the map
i'm actually amazed that they rereleased it on a whole new storefront for real money and literally no one on this subreddit gives a monkey's that the game is genuinely unplayable and they're never going to patch it ever again

The term "mail-order bride" is both criticized by owners of global marriage companies and made use of by them as an easily recognizable term. Niceboy and honnestly Iam an on the internet interested guy as well as pompous however i love's offer all desire for a lady when i luv her and iam must affixed for a woman i like can he tell him a long time with is Jiji male seeking lady 30 years old Delmas, Haiti. In fact, Haitian ladies favor their spouses to be somewhat older than themselves. They think that the older a man is, the a lot more successful he is and also the even more respect he has in the direction of ladies. Haitian females intend to really feel shielded by their companions, which is why most Haitian mail order brides will be totally great with a year age distinction.
Most women end up being "sex-slaves" or forced laborers that are later resold to human traffickers to defray the expense. In passing IMBRA, Congress was replying to insurance claims by the Tahirih Justice Facility, a female's advocacy team, that mail-order brides were vulnerable to domestic misuse due to the fact that they are not familiar with the legislations, language and custom-mades of their new house. The TJC asked Congress to consider numerous significant instances pointed out in the Congressional Document. Movie critics of IMBRA insurance claim that the TJC failed to ask Congress to think about the family member amount of abuse between mail-order bride pairs and also other pairs. While there is still no official demand for a minimum salary, the sponsor has to offer evidence of income with their IMM 5481 Sponsorship Examination. Among the significant modifications was conjugal companion sponsorship, available for any 2 individuals (including same-sex couples) who have actually had conjugal relationships with each other for a minimum of one year.
Virgin Vietnamese ladies, from 18 to 25 years old particularly, are targeted by a number of third-parties called the quickie matchmaking firms for East and also Southeast Asian men from South Korea, Taiwan, China, Malaysia and also Singapore. Virginity is considered one of the most valuable quality in this service as virgin Vietnamese women are typically acquired at a greater price factor.
Haitian, simply be a perfect gent, as well as she will surely make it worth your while. In spite of its ruined economic climate Haiti still offers a good net insurance coverage which the it fairly easy for ladies to try to find love online. Meet, the majority of ladies contend the very least primary English knowledge that will allow you to execute a standard discussion. Bride-purchasing prevails in the states of India such as Haryana, Jharkhand, and also Punjab.
On the other hand, you don't require to be a specialist to comprehend that life in Haiti can be tough. The effects of the quake, as well as the country's general financial as well as social state, make it tough for ladies to accomplish what they want and also develop a good life on their own and their future children. That is why they wish to open far better possibilities through a marital relationship with a foreigner, and also they can provide their love as well as loyalty in return.

According to CNN-IBN, women are "gotten, offered, trafficked, raped as well as wed off without permission" throughout particular components of India. Bride-purchases are normally contracted out from Bihar, Assam, as well as West Bengal. The cost of the bride, if purchased from the vendors, may cost between 4,000 as well as 30,000 Indian rupees, which is the equivalent of $88 to $660USD. The brides' parents are typically paid an average of 500 to 1,000 Indian rupees (around $11 to $22USD). Such reduced proportion was triggered by the preference to give birth boys as opposed to little girls, and also female foeticide. In 2006, according to BBC News, there were around 861 women for each 1,000 men in Haryana; as well as the nationwide ratio in India overall was 927 ladies for every 1,000 males. Ladies are not just acquired as brides or better halves, but additionally as farm employees or househelp.

2020.11.20 15:55 Kurdgela22 Spellbreak improvement ideas

I've been playing Spellbreak since launch and i love it so much, it's the most original and diverse game i have ever played. However i think it needs some polish and i think it has potential to become very popular. I had so many ideas about how to change the game so i made a looong list about some things that i would love to be implemented in the actual game. The reason that it's this long because i thought about every single detail. This doesn't mean game is bad, it means that they can do so many things to improve it. My native language is not english so if there are some stupid grammar mistakes i'm sorry, but i think overall it's fine. Let's start:
Low player count
I think what stops game from progressing is the low player count. it's the most important issue in my opinion, if they can solve this everything will be so much easier. Lot of people download the game, but only few continued so there must be a problem in gameplay. You queue for minutes and then you die in seconds, that is not nice when you start out the game. Some people grind and learn on mistakes, but some of them just gave up and unninstall it right away, because they don't know anything about the game, tutorial gives you very little information about things, only fundamentals. But when you match strong players they know far more than just basics, so here's my solution:
Better tutorial
It might seem silly to some people, but tutorial is really important when you start out and for the game like spellbreak with all those crazy combos, skills, runes and mechanics, current one is not enough. I have some ideas to how to change it up:
1. Avira's voice
This Avira Emberdane artwork is nice and everything but man, we already heard her voice in element prologue intros and it's soo nice so please add it, it's a nice touch when you start out a game, you already appreaciate it and the stuff is more memorable that way.
2. Only fire gauntlet?
When you show me fire gauntlet, then it's sorcery and combination with toxic, that's only 10% of what i need to know about them, let me play with every gauntlet and try them out, not one, at the end you can yes, but do the same thing as on fire gauntlet on everything, you can't just say: here you go this is fire, you can learn others by yourself it totally doesn't require any skill to master, come on! And runes there are many of them, showing me the Wolf's blood (which is not gonna lie the worst one) is not enough, you must teach me every single one. Combining elements is very important too, show me then - Dragonfire - check! but there is 20 more, when i finish tutorial in result i know only how to use fire and theoretically that there are some runes and combos bla bla bla! You have to show everything, i know that tutorial must be short, but with the right execution it's doable in productive way.
3. Rarities
this is a minor one, but if you tell me there are lots of rarities, just tell me which is the best, which is the worst, all of them.
4. Team and communication step
Avira only tells you that coordination is the key and you have to help your teammate. we know that already. tell me some strategies, for example: when you are low find a cover and heal or shield, or when you're teammate is low push back, don't be aggressive or something, at least teach me that V is the button which activates push to talk, so i can talk to them. You must teach new player that to secure the elimination you have to exile someone, maybe they are new to this genre.
5. Talents and Skills
I think these are very important parts of the gameplay and not saying a word about them in the tutorial is very bad. New players are probably getting outplayed, because they don't know that they're opponents are using something against him that he doesn't even know about. In my eye, that is not fair, tell players everything in the tutorial what they need to know. Of course there is a danger that they will get confused, but if you ask me, if explaining everything nicely confuses them, they can't handle the game in the future either.
Sponsorship
I know that Proletariat isn't the big company, and dont have that much budget to sponsor famous youtubers, but when it comes down to increasing the player count, it is the best way. I think they sponsor MarcusakaApostle, he's a nice guy no complains, but i think who watches his content 90% of them already has the game installed. Proletariat should try sponsoring youtubers with lot of views who don't play spellbreak, it would spread the information better i think. If I'm asking for too much I'm sorry it's just what i think they should try.
Matchmaking
Lot of players are frustrated with meeting lot more skilled players than they are, i know lot of people uninstalled the game just because of that, so please developers, when there is enough people match them by their k/d not just put the 8 level and 56 level player in one lobby, that is very rude for new players, for now i know it's not possible cause of low player count, but i hope you will do it in future.
Grinding
Spellbreak is a free2play game so, 70% of the people doesn't spend money on it, they grind for rewards, so if you don't make them happy with grindable content they will leave and that's very bad. Currently there are some things to grind for, but they are not worth that time. For example, when you reach second level on class you get 50 gold, when you reach 17th rank, guess what you get 50 also, come on... Reaching rank 17 can take you 100 games, so for playing this much i get 50 gold, which i need x24 to buy rare skin. Isn't that funny?! I know that you can buy gold with real money and devs just can't give you thousands of them for free, but give cool badge instead of extra gold, some banner, name, idk anything that is cool. Make the work that you put into reaching a higher rank worth it, when i see that next reward is 50 gold and i have to get 100k more xp, i just lose motivation and that's how it is for other people. Mage ranks are even worse every single one of them gives you 50 gold, but on every 5th level you get an amazing gauntlet badge which no one uses, pls make rank up rewards more motivational. This new elemental skins, were the most perfect opportunity to add something grindable, but unfortunately Proletariat missed their chance, but that's okay i have an idea, which leads to my next topic.
Quests
If I'm being honest quest are bad. They give you so little xp and is very easy to do. It's very boring, so i thought of introducing new currency to the game. This "currency" will be exclusive to the quests, and there will be exclusive skins which would only be purchasable with this currency. You can get it from only quests, it's pure grind and not purchasable with real money. I think this will spice up quests and more people will get interested in them. Make them more difficult, current ones are just one game tasks, 2 game max for beginners. More difficult=better rewards. Make weekly quests, monthly quests, i don't know go crazy. Make them hard, just put the right prize on it and people will do them.
P.S. pls make quests rotate on current hour, not one day after when it's completed, if you don't want to do some quest it just stays there forever, rotate them on current hour.
Practise mode
Skill ceiling in this game is so high, game has to have something for player to improve in, just playing BR is so time consuming, matchmaking 10 minutes, actual gameplay 10 seconds, that is painful. So i thought about making "practise" mode better, now it's just land, where there are legendary items and 2 standing targets. I think they can do so much more to make it better:
1. Add moving targets
Two standing targets is not enough for practise, these targets are useless, they won't improve anything in player. Proletariat has to add moving targets, and to make it even more interesting, exercises for every single class (for example fast moving targets for Frostborn to practise hitting your shots when people are moving mid air), they can add target which escapes from you and you have to get him with toxic gauntlet or something, everything is possible, standing targets are not "practise".
2. Custom matches
People have been begging for this feature, to play against friends on 1v1, you can practise, it's fun and interesting for knowing how good you are at the game. I don't know if it's hard to add for developers, but there is easy solution to this situation, just let the whole squad join in practise and problem is fixed, i think it's not that hard to do, easy fix-big impact.
3. Scrolls
Add scrolls to that castle where everything is. When you join practise and for example you want to test out max potential of focused mana on frost you have to find them in chests, why?!
4. Change talents and Main class while in practise
If player wants to try out another talents on class, or another class with same talents, you have to exit, wait, then pick them then again enter, why is this necessary? Some people will just leave and don't join again, cause they don't want to waste their time on that, they rather test it out in game.
Chapter system improvements
Prologue is pretty nice for "test" chapter, but i think they need to polish some details about it.
Avira's speech about elements is nice and all, but it's very boring, it literally doesn't make any difference if it was there or not, just a short story about certain element. Add something to them, this is not enough, at least make it visual that this week represents fire, for example add fire background on the home screen or something make it have a reason to exist.
If you say that we have story and lore behind this, only showing me the text isn't interesting for players.
Make honour quests harder, if you are skilled, it can be completed in one match, that is not right, it should be harder and more rewarding. Make rewards go by order, from less pretty to more nicer stuff, so you can increase xp which you need to reach higher tiers, because now people finished it in a week. So short and easy to complete. Make it harder and more worth it.
One more thing, when you go through all of the tiers in chapters, it's very boring to play the game, you don't want to do quests, honour quests neither, so there is nothing in the game to grind for except class ranks. With excess xp you should get something, for example every 10k xp you get 10 gold or something, it is not necessary for it to be a lot, just add something to continue doing quests and grinding for the prizes.
New game modes
At the moment, i think spellbreak needs more content, something that players will have fun with, short matchmaking, quick games, improving skill and testing builds.
I think this is the best game mode for this situation:
3v3 Exilematch
Only 6 players needed, quick matchmaking is checked. Fast paced small map combat, which is focused on practising certain elements. Cause it needs only 6 players you can make people match by k/d so there are some close games between them. Looting is not necessary just give them everything from the start of the match and then your only focus is fighting. You can improve your skill and get better at the game by playing against similar skill players. You respawn and it will work like DeathMatch mode in other games. They can also do voices on getting double exile, triple exile, quad exile, when you hear it you feel more powerful and cool, you get more confident and get addicted to the game. I think this would be nice "cherry on top" thing for Deatmatch and BR too.
Minor Details
1. Potions
I wanted to talk about certain amounts of potions that u can carry.
First, is epic safeguard, i think you should be able to carry 2 of them because they give total value of 50=25+25, so you would rather carry 1 big health potion or 1 big shield because they are more easy to find, and give the same value of 50 right away and there is a potential of finding second one and that would the potential value 100. Which is double the safeguard, i know there is a difference it heals up both shield and health at the same time, but opponent first takes off you shield so you would rather carry 2 big shields and get 100 shield instead of 25 shield and 25 health, i think everything is clear at this point.
Second, uncommon health and shield potions. I think you should be able to carry 3 of them instead of two, here's why: small common potions can give you max value of 90=15x6, cause you can carry six. 2 uncommon potions give you 50, i know green ones are faster to drink, but there is almost double the difference so it's not worth to pick them up over the small six ones. If you carry 3 it will give you total value of 75=25x3 which is reasonable for the less time it takes to drink.
2. Backgrounds
Home screen is the place where you spend most of the time in menu, so changing it's background is very very easy and it would make the eye happy, because visual effects matter, brain gets bored of the same things over and over, change it up it's very easy and effective so do it, there is one picture on loading screen with this one guy with conduit gauntlet, eyes gets tired of the same thing, change it up, it's a simple poster, come on, there is a lot of them just make 10 and rotate them or make them rewardable in class ranks and make it choosable. It would be very appreciated.
3. Drop the items whenever you want
If you don't find other thing to swap, you can't just give your teammate something ( rune, better gauntlet, belt, boots, amulet, etc.) other than potions. it's a very simple thing, i don't know why it's not implemented into the game.
4. Spectate your friends
I think in the br game there should be a way to watch your friend play when he's in a match, just for fun or to teach someone what to do, how to play in certain situations, etc.
Just one more thing before gameplay changes, Make chapter quests visible when you are in the match too, like the basic quests appear.
Gameplay Changes
1. Balance changes
For me and as i know current meta is dominated by stone and conduit, because stone is hitting people where it shouldn't so i thought about giving it a nerf of verticality hitting the enemy, so when you are pretty high up in the air it shouldn't hit you.
Now i wanna talk about conduit, it is very very very very annoying, not only for me but for every fricking community, even spellbreak CEO on streams runs conduit (LOL), jokes aside it needs a nerf. It has so much dps you can't even react, so they should nerf it this way: When you hit five times in a row then you can no longer shoot for 2 Seconds. I think conduit will be still strong, but this will give you some time to react and damage them in return.
2. Frostborn sorcery rework
I love playing as Frostborn, it's very fun and most satisfying class to play with. However i think it has the worst sorcery out of the all gauntlets. Here's why, it was made to freeze people and block shots of lightning, fire and wind , so if you're fighting against someone with frost, stone or toxic and they have harmony equipped it is LITERALLY useless. No other sorcery is useless in situations like this one. So i have an idea to rework it so it's somewhat usable. It only surrounds you so they should make it ball shaped so you're protected from all sides, this ball should absorb every single gauntlet's projectile except other frost gauntlets. Do this or remove freezing immunity from harmony otherwise it's just too useless, buff something i don't ask to make it the strongest sorcery just make it usable.
3. Wind gauntlet damage over distance
I have thought sometimes picking wind gauntlet offhand, but it's too weak when you don't have it's Skills. So I thought about buffing damage over distance a little, cause it does no damage when you're not very close to the opponent not having wind surge puts you at a disadvantage. I haven't seen anyone famous using wind gauntlet as an offhand. To increase its pick rate, i would've increase damage over distance so from medium damage you can still do ok damage instead of "nothing".
Runes
1. Featherfall
We all know Featherfall is bad, so let's mess around with it in cool ways to make it more viable inside of the game.
Featherfall buff: you gain 50% damage reduction on everything while rune is active, if you shoot, this effect stops working.
2. Teleport
Teleport is pretty balanced rune, but when you need it most to work (when you're low) it betrays you so hard, it says "invalid target", everything is fine with this rune, just make it more reliable in hard situations.
3. Wolf's blood
I think this rune is cool, but for sacrificing the movement that other runes give you, it has too low of a value to equip, so i thought about buffing it, while rune is activated you can see enemies health within the range. This will give you more information about enemies, so sacrificing more movement will be worth it.
Talents
Current state of talents are pretty balanced in spellbreak, there are many builds that are used, but i wanted to buff some talents that no one uses.
1. Tracking: it costs 1 instead of 2 now, effect last longer 3 sec -- 6 sec.
Finders keepers was recently buffed, but i think it's too weak.
2. Finders keepers: increase scroll drop rate even more, when you have it maxed out, it's still not guaranteed to get a scroll from chests, that's what it's supposed to do and it's the same.
Foresight was a very overpowered talent on paper, but in reality no one used it, so i thought about giving it a buff.
3. Foresight: it costs 2 instead of 3 now, unopened epic chests are marked on the map too.
Class skills
The Class skills are a very nice touch to already interesting combat. However i think some of them need to balanced, or doesn't make sense as it is.
1. Fire gauntlet
First skill: 150% radius (we can all agree that 200% radius on Combust is too much).
Third skill: firewall becomes taller (no one uses firewall for damage, so i thought about changing it up a little).
2. Stone gauntlet
Third skill: on direct hit stun for 1.5 seconds (i think making boulder larger over distance, it is very useless and if you see it, you can dodge it easily, so i thought about giving it other power).
3. Toxic gauntlet
First skill: you are immune to your toxic puddles ( if you're toxicologist and entering toxic cloud makes you invisible, why does the puddles damage you?! at least remove slow effect on player who places them).
4. Lightning gauntlet
Third skill: on cast lightning strike: levitation mana cost -100% for 4 seconds (i think lightning is very strong without this too, so this is too much, but levitation willl be pretty useful too).
Frost and Wind gauntlet Class skills from my perspective they are pretty balanced, they did a good job creating them.
Spellbreak is a very cool game and if you improve it where it needs, this game has infinite potential. If you made it this far, thank you, these are my personal thoughts about reworking some things in the game. This doesn't mean the game is bad, I just thought about every tiny detail that could be polished inside of it.
Thank you for reading!

2020.11.18 09:18 CrioChamber Gameplay mechanic to help abandoned players [Gameplay]

Already posted this on the discord, but that can get cluttered up with other texts if not catalogued correctly, so moving it here. Anyhow,
So, thinking of an interesting concept (imo):
Now, to start off, for context of this, you cannot go above the matchmaking's team size. In other words, Trios cannot go above 3 members, Duos above 2, so on so forth.
Say you somehow end up missing a person or without a team entirely and you encounter another player in the same situation, if you manage to down them, instead of executing them you can offer to squad up.
However, this cannot be done if your teammates are dead, only if there's a missing roster spot, I.E. DC'ed player.
This would also offer up some dynamic gameplay as the people that were fighting in front of you could now be legitimately teamed up.
Now, this bear into mind some technicalities. I can't think of all of them at this time, but here are some that come off the top of my mind:
A couple of solutions I can think of:
  1. Simply lose out on all credit after disconnect--The game would detect early leavers with the same code that checks for a respawn timer above 0, meaning the check that says "You can stil l be revived!" or "You'd be letting your teammates down!" Basically the same thing that effectively happens now as far as I can tell.
  1. If the player disconnects because the timer runs out while teammates are out of combat and the deathbox is safe, the surviving members would be forced to play with what they have player count wise.--Regarding this, to determine if the deathbox is safe, it would scan if players from other squads are nearby in a radius around it, or if it's being aimed at. How would it determine if it's being aimed at? Integrate Wraith's aiming detection programming. The line of code that tells Wraiths "You're being aimed at", you'd use that same or similar code for the deathbox.
Now, as stated, I'm only one person thinking of these. What else could you see missing or abused if not done right, and if you have a probable solution to a problem please indicate so!

2020.11.17 20:38 ktsmith91 TC please just replace Ranked 2v2 with Gridiron

2v2 is the mode that should be sidelined to private matches only. I have reasons!

2020.11.17 06:58 JMH1001 The City is pretty much a disaster, but so is The Rec.

After trying my hardest to struggle through the 2 FPS park gameplay for a while, I decided to try playing rec instead since it seems most people have migrated here as a result of the issues in park.
The Rec seems mainly untouched, which is totally okay in my opinion. It’s a pretty standard concept, just simple 5v5 matchmaking games for people who don’t have a full squad to play Pro-Am. I maybe would have liked a new court and maybe some new jerseys, but I can live without that.
What I do want to know is, who in their right mind decided that 60 overall AI players needed to be involved this year? These dudes are physically incapable of making a wide open layup, much less a free throw. Got 4 players in your lobby? Lets flush your chances of possibly enjoying your experience by giving you a 6’3 center who has the capabilites of that fat kid who got cut from your middle school basketball team.
Not to mention the past 3 times I’ve tried queueing up in this mode I’ve been hit with some terrible lag. Not the same as the framerate drops that happen in The City, but just giant lag spikes that make the game unplayable. I haven’t seen anyone complain about this lag and I haven’t exerienced it up until today so I won’t put that against 2K, but it’s worth mentioning.
Most people that are trying to rep up quickly have switched to Rec now because The City doesn’t give as much rep as the Rec does. Also the City is a gamble every game you go into because the framerate is god awful in half the games you play. Even after the patch.
This game performs terribly most of the time, and they even managed to screw up the one mode they had going for them although they left it mostly untouched. So many fixes are needed, and at this point it seems like the developers don’t even know what to do to fix the issues. This is really troubling considering a large part of the user base doesn’t have the game yet. I remain optimistic, but this is one of the worst launches in a 2K game I’ve ever experienced having played every game since 2K10. The game is beautiful, the load times are amazingly quick, the concepts they implemented are creative and fun, but the execution is just awful.

2020.11.17 02:04 mferrarii I made a post like this for MW, now I'm making it for CW.

I'd like to preface this post with the fact that I come in good faith, but holy shit am I pissed. I hope that developers like u/FoxhoundFPS can see what I'm saying and find some type of solution. This isn't a me issue, this is a community issue.
I used to think that the biggest mistake that I've ever made in my life was never going towards my aspirations in life but I've thoroughly reconsidered it and have fallen on the fact that my biggest mistake that I've ever made in my entire life was expecting these game developers to shit out some semblance of a good game after the shit show that MW was. I don't even regret buying this game, but expecting it to be good is what I regret.
I blame the shitty money stealing whores sitting at their executive desks at Activi$ion, laughing at how many people have fallen into giving money to the scam they have created.
To be completely fair, campaign is the best campaign that there has been in a while, HOWEVER, Activi$ion had absolutely no say in anything that happened in the campaign and the entire campaign is a whopping five hours entirely.
Zombies is also great but that should be expected from a Black Ops game. They have a status quo, they have a standard that the Zombies gamemode should be the star of their game. HOWEVER, Zombies has the most bugs I have ever seen on a launch title and the easter egg that came with the game is short and unimpressive, it is fun, but unimpressive. If the easter egg can be solved in literally 2 hours, then it is not that good of an easter egg, I hate to say it.
Now the magnum opus of this game, the absolute amalgamation of shit that results in those stupid corporate motherfucking bootlickers at Activi$ion sitting and rubbing their elbows together, the multiplayer game mode. Three words: Skill Based Matchmaking (SBMM). SBMM has drained me of any type of fun or enjoyment that I have gotten out of this game. I am all for skill based video games and taking video games competitively, HOWEVER, the skill based matchmaking system in this video game is so unbelievably harsh and unrealistic that it leaves anybody who wins a match finding the next one unwinnable and anybody who loses a match finding the next one as an absolute wipe. Taking the time to sit down and play a multiplayer match of this game feels more like a chore than a leisure activity. Knowing that after winning one match you will lose the next 1-4 matches is not motivating and does not keep players engaged in your video game. Please, for the love of GOD, remove this god forsaken system from this video game and revert it back to how it simply was before. Releasing a "fully complete" video game with only 29 guns and 8 maps is not a complete video game. MW launched with 39 guns, 10 whole more guns, not to mention the amount of customization that came with each weapon. MW launched with about 18 maps, once again, 10 whole more than CW. THE FUCKING CALL OF DUTY MOBILE GAME HAS MORE GUNS THAN THIS GODDAMN VIDEO GAME RELEASED FOR THE NEW GENERATION OF GAMING. Not that it matters that only 29 guns are in this game since literally 50% of the people that play this game only use the MP5. The MP5 is absolutely broken, devs didn't even take the time to look at how absolutely unbalanced a gun like this one is, a gun that can outsnipe snipers and outdamage shotguns; it is absolutely ridiculous.
The Call of Duty franchise is on a complete downwards slope. Activ$ion only cares about the amount of money they can wring out of their consumer. Activi$ion is acting on the animalistic impulses of the consumer and taking advantage of the thought that they would have released a complete game, which they haven't. They have released a bug ridden, uncomplete game. Avid multiplayer players are reverting to playing zombies simply because SBMM is such a powerful system in this game.
I seriously hope that these developers decide to take their heads out of their asses and decide to salvage this absolutely fucking broken game that they have released. I'm going to restate that the biggest thing I have ever regretted in my life is expecting this game to actually be good, God how fucking wrong was I.
P.S.: Let me set my fucking calling card and actually have it save and make Reagan and Gorbachev playable operators.

2020.11.17 00:27 GrincherZ Godfall - Review from a CPG fan of Duelyst, as well as other ARPG titles

Hey Everyone I'm GrincherZ (rebranded recently as ToNoahEnd on TTV).
Some of you might remember me from CPG's first game, a card game called Duelyst. I streamed Duelyst for a couple years and made Twitch Partner early on because of it; CPG even gave me the great honor of becoming a card in their game: Grincher
That all said I have played all the Soulsborne games even completing SL 1 runs on DS 1-3, Nioh (which I think this game closest resembles), and I have over 2000 hours on PoE and Diablo 3 along with many other ARPGs.
I played on PC without a controller and as of this review have completed up to level 50 in dream stones and attempted the tower climb 7 times highest floor 8 (fairly fresh 50.. will do more later)I will break my review down by 6 categories Story, Graphics, Sound, UI, Gameplay, Post-game.
Story - About as short lived as 2 draw was in Duelyst (2/5)
Graphics - As beautiful a game in 3D as Duelyst was in Pixel art (5/5)
Sound - About as serviceable as the Story is memorable (3/5)
User Interface - QA on a 3 year lunch break? (1/5)
Gameplay - Addictive and Satisfying.. To a point (3/5)
Post-Game - Well I'm still playing 20 hours later after beating it.. (3/5)
Verdict: 3/5 (2.8)

My final wish is for them to add PS4 Controller support on PC. There isn't any currently.

If you guys enjoyed this review you can find me on Twitch at ttv/ToNoahEnd Thanks for reading.Edits: Spelling / grammar

2020.11.16 08:45 theHugoat How do the devs not have this down 10+ years later???

Things CoD players used to complain about: 1MA Noob Tubes, Spas Snipers, Commando, Famas, things that are patch/nerfable (I’m aware these are still things we complain about, but you’ll get my point in a sec)
Things we complain or should I say are forced to deal with now (just a few examples): Tickrate, hit-reg, lack of content, partymaking, matchmaking, gamebreaking glitches, AIM ASSIST. LITERALLY THINGS THAT YOU JUST HAVE TO RIP FROM THE LAST GAME AND NOT FUCK WITH. THIS IS SUPPOSEDLY AAA GAME AND THE FRANCHISE WAS THE PINNACLE OF FPS AT A POINT! WHAT IS THIS SHIT
This game is so half baked dude. Not even trying to complain about petty mechanics or gameplay like (fuck) SBMM or gun metas or anything like that. The game is literally just incomplete and not up to a par with what you’d expect from a franchise that was THE First Person Shooter once upon a time.
There’s also simply a lack of anything new/innovative. You can even say it’s a step back from MW. It’s underwhelming in so many aspects compared to MW. The graphics are not as good despite this being for next gen, the engine seems worse, less content than MW, the ground war game mode is nowhere on par, the overall feel of the game doesn’t feel as good (although that last one is preference i suppose). This games only saving grace is zombies content wise which even that is so buggy and is only one map.
And before you be an Activision shill and say “wait till season 1, blah blah blah more will come” ask yourself this: WHEN THE FUCK HAVE YOU EVER HAD TO “WAIT” FOR MORE LAUNCH DAY LEVEL CONTENT OR EVEN A LAUNCH DAY FUNCTIONING GAME >AFTER< LAUNCH DAY!?!??? THIS IS BELOW THE MINIMUM!
And I understand that the pandemic has made it harder for development. Not to mention the dev team takeover. Which should’ve been all the more reason to delay the game. MW/Warzone was good enough to keep adding content to hold people over. Hell MW/Warzone could maybe go another if they really committed to the idea. And that’s another thing. This whole integration with Warzone seems to be way too much. It clearly shows that Activi$ion was trying to feed to warzone players and are once again throwing MP players under the bus again. Having a solid MP should be priority before thinking about how to transition Warzone. I feel like this game, actually it’s clear; that this game was released when it was despite it’s clearly obvious flaws simply to correspond with Next Gen releasing in attempt to get more money.
This game is simply underwhelming on paper and is even worse in execution. Without even talking about how people play, SBMM, what weapons are OP or bad, what maps suck or are good, spawns, class balance.. It’s just lackluster, and not worth $70. It doesn’t seem like a AAA title.
I feel like anyone who’s purchased this game (essentially early) should receive a bonus. Like how indie titles have “founders packs” and stuff. We deserve COD Points, free XP tokens, a free season 1 pass, i dont know. Maybe that’s asking a lot. I just think we should be compensated in some way.

2020.11.16 08:03 Xairen Godfall Review - I got sold on the "Dark Souls combat w/ Looter mechanics" sales pitch. Pre-ordered the game and didn't follow news and updates. Here's my went-in-blind 2 cents.

Hi all!
Xairen here, I'm a very picky gamer with 25 years of gaming history. In the last decade I mostly shied away from AAA games and I love me a lot of the Soulsborne series. I played Diablo 1-3, PoE, and Warframe for my looters.
I saw the game announced and I got sold to the "Dark Souls combat w/ Looter mechanics" sales pitch. I left it there and didn't follow anything afterwards. I've been playing since launch on the PS5, finished the tutorial campaign, and dabbled in the endgame.
As someone who went in blind, I figured I'd leave my 2-cents in here.
EDIT: There could be story spoilers here. Although with a game like this, you could pretty much tell what happens or how it ends. You've been warned. XD
The way I scored this, I started with a perfect score of 5. I deducted point(s) for every item I believe the devs/game didn't execute well, with consideration to the game's genre and the existing games within the genre.

Story - Macros is disappointed in you, female-voiced Orin brother - 2/5

Graphics (Valorplates, Weapons, and Enemies) - As beautiful as Moebius - 4/5

Graphics (Realms) - As confusing as Mesa, a ram, being poisonous - 2/5

Audio - I'm having a Vertigo - 2/5

UI, Menus and Other Gameplay Features - A hot mess like Solaris' Arena - 1/5
  1. No mini-map AND there's the confusing, uniform, corridor-like map design.
  2. Equipment sorting is severely limited.
  3. No mass-salvage. I mean, come on, this is a looter game which means there will be tons of loot. Most of the looted equipment will be garbage. This should be a launch feature.
  4. Skill builds save/load slots - players are free to re-spec anytime but purchasing skills takes forever. If you're going to do this, and you expect your players to do it a lot, why not provide a build save/load feature? 2 per Valorplate? Same goes for loadout save slots.
  5. In the Tower, what the hell are those symbols for? I completed the whole campaign and never saw those symbols. If they were used in the equipment menu there wouldn't be that confusion.

Gameplay (Core & Loot System) - Zamora is a competitive cookie-cutter - 3/5

Gameplay (Combat) - "I am power" - 3/5
  1. The fundamentals is the solid part. They copied From Software's formula for a lack of better phrasing. Then added some of their ideas and removed some from the original. Not exactly the same, but you'd get that feeling.
  2. It can be inconsistent because there are some things that you expect but doesn't happen. Example 1: Say you have 2 enemies of the same size, one of them you can stagger with Greatsword R1, the other you can't and you end up getting punched in the face with half your life eviscerated. Example 2: Parrying, with some enemies, a white parry is good enough, while it has to be blue for the other. The recovery windows for enemies also vary quite a bit, making your parry inconsistent. It's like you need to remember which enemies are good to parry and which ones you just have to dodge. Design choice maybe? To be fair, I did not test if the "Parry Window" is for the actual parrying or the window of attack afterwards.

Valorplates - "Call forth 12 Spirit Warriors to aid you in battle" - 3/5
  1. Even better if there was a selection of maybe 5(?) active skills but you can only equip 2 at once so that players can really tailor how they want to play.

Final Thoughts - "You would dare to raise your weapon against a god?" - 2.5/5
Macros (Godfall) is a beautiful wolf that tried to ascend to godhood but failed because "YoU'rE nO oNe, MaCroS." He had the potential but Orin (questionable design choices) and the Sanctum (half-baked / barebones systems) interfered.
I hope the game doesn't end up like Macros himself, disintegrating into oblivion, but like Orin instead who keeps on reviving no matter how many times I throw him at the same boss to ultimately be a good Valorian game.
Currently, it's impossible for me to recommend the game to anyone whole-heartedly. They'd need to love Dark Souls-y combat and looters to like this game. Even still, not worth it at full price. If you can get past those, go ahead get it and enjoy the game. Otherwise, there are other looters that are doing it better. Play those and wait for this one to go on sale or get better.
There's so much room for improvement and if the devs decide to stick around, they may just pull off a No Man's Sky.
As for myself, I like the combat and loot enough to keep on playing.

Hey! If you made it here, thanks for reading! :)

2020.11.15 17:02 Generic_Username_297 I tried to remain positive with Godfall, but honestly, I can't be bothered anymore. The developers lied about so much, and it feels like so much was cut from the game.

I've had a weird love-hate relationship with Godfall since the game was announced. The first teaser back in 2019 was awesome, but the June and August PS5 events made the game look horrible, then the Combat Trailer got me interested again, but now that the game has actually released......man, it's pretty hard trying to remain positive with this game. I mean, the developer's straight up lied about a bunch of important features, and so many decisions behind the game are just so stupid.
The Lying: The developers lied about so many important features of this game, and in the end, only gave us half of what they promised. At first, there were going to be five realms; Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and a Spirit Realm where you'd fight the final boss. But then the game released, all we got were Earth, Water, and Air. The Fire and Spirit Realm were just cut out, probably so that the developers could lock them behind the expansion.
And the Valorplates are all just skins at this point. The "elemental damage" dealt by the different Valorplates is practically useless, since everything just deals DOT/Damage Over Time. The Valorplates all function practically the same, so why the hell did the developers advertise them as if every Valorplate was a different playstyle?
The Stupid Decisions: Okay, everyone has already mentioned this, but I just have to mention.....why the hell is Godfall always online when the game doesn't even have matchmaking? No, you know what? Even if the game did have matchmaking, why the hell does it need to be always online? Other games don't have to deal with this kind of stupid decisions, so why did the developers think always online was a good idea?
And the writing in this game, my god! I'm okay with a game having a basic story, but the problem with this game isn't the story, it's the dialogue and voice acting. It feels like a bunch of high-schoolers role-playing Dungeons and Dragons.
TLDR: I tried to remain positive with Godfall, but I've gotta be honest here, the developers lied about way too much. They slashed the game's length, the different Valorplates are all practically identical, the game is always online but doesn't have matchmaking.....what the hell man? I'm actually wondering if Godfall was even meant to be a launch title, it feels like this game was forced into a November release by some executives who don't understand game development....which happens way too often.

2020.11.15 12:44 Wollowon List Of Suggestion

I know developers working on game , I just reporting.

-Add Cape - Remove Cape (With Different Cape Types)
-Shoulder Type Change (Symmetric - Asymmetric (Current Version)), asymmetric shoulders look weird and all valorplates has it.
-Cover Cloth Option for front of valorplate (between legs) , some valorplates has it but some not , It's looks weird.
-Valorplates/Weapons color customization with material(metallic etc.) select.
-There are 12-13 valorplate , easy task to do gender variants and It's extreme important.
-The number of weapons skins is low , need increase.(Too Much)
-Weapon execution(Currently Game Has Only Shield Execution/Takedown)
-Health potion system not stable and reliable , need revision.
-Add "Main Menu" system to game , currently when you start game , directly loads to game which is bad experience.
-Pause Menu Need Revision , better user interface and when you click to exit game , It should ask "Are You Sure".
-Completely Reset Your Progress And Start Over Again Option Need , they should add this option , It's core feature nearly every online-offline game has.
-Matchmaking
-Ray Tracing Tech.
-DLSS 2.0 Tech.

2020.11.14 23:40 Doza93 Ultimate Edition for Windows 10 Problems?

So from what I've seen so far online, UE for Windows 10 has had a ton of big issues from matchmaking not working to crashing etc. Recently, my buddies and I picked it up and have been exclusively playing private execution matches and I think all of us have dealt with crashing, getting booted out of games, and freezing and having to alt-tab out and restart.
I've checked the requirements on Can I Run It and my hardware is all good, but I have specifically dealt with constant freezing. As in, I try to join a game and I load in and instantly freeze in the spectating mode. Or in between rounds, I freeze as soon as we return to the lobby screen. Or we load in to a match and it freezes on the count down screen. Sometimes I have to quit out and restart the game like 10 times a night in order to keep playing.
Has anyone dealt with this? Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

2020.11.14 20:07 Mr_Lymbo GODFALL! My thoughts and criticisms. Another $60 title that is falling short. Damn.

This game has TWO good things about it in my eyes.
COMBAT!! I would personally like to be able to attack cancel but that’s just me. It’s not perfect, and could use some small tweaks. The core however is there and I would love to see it built up.
GRAPHICS!! while very demanding, are amazing.
So props these TWO things are great.
TLDR: GodFall has promise, but it has fallen short for me. I fear the devs will not be able to fix the issues at hand in time as players will likely drop it in a few weeks or less. I’m seeing screaming similarities to Anthem’s release here. Damn.
I am going to try and be constructive here, and not dump too hard because I want to be respectful in this post.
STORY!! No, remove the story. Take it out drop the price and use all your resources on everything else. I’m severely disappointed in the execution in the story. It’s undeniably hollow. The fact that this got through the development process has me dumbfounded. I will probably never buy a game from counterplay/gearbox on release month again because of this.
SOCIAL!! A multiplayer CO-OP with no matchmaking at all. Hopefully to be fixed later down the line. Please.
CORE LOOP!! While the core loop is okay there are issues. The main one being after about 10 of each mission you get bored. The tower is okay there are some things that save it, but ultimately it’s the same uninspired stuff you faced in the story. It’s frustrating.
WEAPONS!! Okay the weapons are clean and well developed. The hammer just scratches that itch. It feels powerful and heavy. As most of the weapons fulfill their niches. There’s one I was a little disappointed with, and that was the polearm. I’ve seen pole arms implemented so much better so this one kinda hurt, as it’s one of my favorite types of weapons second to hammer.
Banner...the animation sucks you kinda just gently place it in the ground. When I hear banner in a game like this I want that thing SLAMMED into the ground and knocking back mobs. Nope.
VALOR PLATES!!! ...sigh I don’t know what happened here..the plates are all the same. They are skins. 1 plate increases crit, 1 increases damage to hydro, another to shock, poison, fire...see where I’m going? One increases breach damage, and another shatter build up. The valor plates are not memorable and it makes me sad. They don’t even have separate skills trees..WHAT?! How am I supposed to differentiate them?! By the fact that one gives me 10% fire status chance?! And more damage to people I set on fire?! Do BETTER!
LOOT!! Loot feels nice, I do an activity I get stuff in plenty. I don’t feel like I’m getting robbed for a 30 minute activity in GodFall so that’s a plus. The stats and sub stats are good. You will feel powerful eventually. A min maxer’s dream though? I don’t think so. 7 categories is too standard to be a dream for me.
I’ll stop here as I feel like I covered most the categories people care about.
Dammit, Counter Play I really expected more in just about every aspect. I don’t like comparing games in different categories. Take a look at monster hunter world..then a look at GodFall.. both cater to Min-Maxer’s who want to kill things with POWER, and get LOOT! While still very different, one is clearly better than the other and the price point is the same..
Another comparison..Warframe. You’ve probably played it if you like looter shoot/slashers. Let me tell you Warframe is better. GodFall has better loot IMO, but that’s because loot doesn’t mean anything to me in Warframe anymore after 2k hours.
If read all of my rant/review I want to thank you and let you know I in no way am trying to thrash the game. I want more than anything for this game to be a success, as good Melee Combat is my personal weakness.

2020.11.14 16:25 Vye7 Warzone has skill based aim assist and skill based hit registration

Link to Patent: https://pdfaiw.uspto.gov/.aiw?PageNum=0&docid=20190329139
As you can see in the patent:
  1. Determine players play style
  2. Find best players with similar play style
  3. Compare the players with the best players
  4. DETERMINE IMPROVEMENTS BASED ON DISCREPANCIES
  5. Present recommendations to player
LONG READ AHEAD:
[0023] determining by the host computer, the players playstyle where the player is associated with first performance data (SBMM) searching by the host computer for other players with similar playstyle. .....
wherein the other players have performance data superior to the first performance data of other players determined by the host computer, areas of improvement for the player based on comparisons; and presenting recommendations to the player in the basis of determined areas of improvement (SBAA and/or SBHR)
0014: optionally, determining of areas of improvement for the player is based on discrepancies between the second performance data and the first performance data.
0015: optionally, the method further comprises computer program instructions that, when executed by the one or more physical processors, cause the host computer to insert one or more generic recommendations from the one or more recommendations presented to the first player.
0017: optionally, the system further comprises a virtual coaching application hosted and implemented at least partly by the host computer. The virtual coaching application comprises program instructions that, when executed, cause the host computer to process one or more discrepancies between the second performance data and the first performance data and use the discrepancies to determine the areas of improvement for the player.
SKILL BASED AUDIO? 0019: optionally, the system further comprises audio output configured to present the recommendations to the player
—————————————————————————-
It's well known that Activision patented this a while ago, but we never thought it was implemented. It is also well known that skill based matchmaking exists in multiplayer but maybe it's more difficult to implement in warzone given the high player account required.
In warzone, have you ever noticed that when you come back from a couple of days without playing you begin to DOMINATE almost immediately, but after hours of gameplay your domination turns into defeat and rage. At first I thought it was skill based matchmaking, but after grinding since launch I've felt there are more factors in play.
Since May I've had this idea and what I've noticed is on controller, aim assist in warzone is always strongest during the beginning of play sessions and weakest at the end.
Well what about mouse and keyboard? I've noticed the same thing, my hit registration is always the best at the beginning of a play session and near the end it seems as if everyone has turned into a bullet sponge.
HOW DID I TEST THIS? I made 6 accounts and used them over the course of 5 months. Each day I use 2-3 accounts depending on my grind.
First, I ensure I haven't used the account in the past two days. Then I go about playing until I notice a significant decrease in my aim assist (if on controller) or hit registration (if on mkb). I play a couple of matches until I’m positive hit registration has taken a crump. Once noticed, I log out and log in on my next account. After immediately doing so, I notice a huge improvement in aim assist/hit registration. Once the 2nd account begins to "deteriorate" I log into my 3rd account and repeat.
I went about playing like this since May and while this is difficult to prove all I can do is share my experience with you all. And yes I've tried relogging into the same account with no improvement in hit registration or aim assist.
Edit: I also want to point out that I also delete tracer files and change MAC address after each profile change.
Also this only applies to higher skilled individuals. If you are doing average or below average then you should never encounter this.

2020.11.13 16:20 i_rank_tvshows BLACK MIRROR - Official* Ranking of Every Episode

BLACK MIRROR - Official* Ranking of Every Episode
*official in the sense that this is what u/i_rank_tvshows thinks and that's pretty official
RANK # EPISODE TITLE SYNOPSIS ANALYSIS
#23 Rachel, Jack, and Ashley Too s5e3 Miley Cyrus pop-star doll Perhaps the most frightening episode of the series because we are left to wonder if every future episode of Black Mirror will be this bad. God I hope not because this crap was near unwatchable.
#22 Metalhead s4e5 Black-and-white dog robot I don't mind the stylistic choice to shoot in black-and-white. And I like the design of the robot dog. But combined together with this story, it's pretty boring, I gotta say. Hoping to like this one more next rewatch but I have my doubts.
#21 Arkangel s4e2 Child-monitoring system While I appreciate the show trying to pull back on the direct focus on tech and shift towards a more domestic setting, it all just fell kind of flat. The retread of the grain technology left this one feeling like a soft idea with decent execution.
#20 Crocodile s4e3 Trying to get away with murder in world where memory tech exists This one is shot beautifully. Switching to Iceland for the setting allowed this one to feel refreshing. The story, however, left a lot to be desired and lost me right when she killed her accomplice. The memory thread was interesting, but leaving it up to a guinea pig when they could have gone for a more ambiguous ending was a tad off for me.
#19 Men Against Fire s3e5 Implant warps solider's perception So the overall moral of this story is not lost on me and is pretty effective in its message. Again, the story suffers, though, as it's not at all as engaging once the conceit has been discovered.
#18 The Waldo Moment s2e3 A blue cartoon bear wins election Watching this one way back before Netflix picked up Black Mirror, this episode seemed like a fun satire. Now, at the tail end of Trump's first term, it's painful, frustrating and upsetting to watch. I suppose that makes it spot on.
#17 The National Anthem s1e1 Prime Minister and a pig Again, back before Netflix picked it up, I tried to get others to watch the show and this episode blocked at least half of them from continuing. It's a bleak entry that still feels so unlike the others, I still have trouble believing it was the very first one. The reveal of it being an art piece was satisfying though.
#16 Smithereens s5e2 Social media abduction The critique of social media is a bit on the nose, but the performances in this one are good. (Why is Topher Grace in everything, though?) I liked the return to London as a setting as this season felt more disconnected from the rest and that helped at least this entry feel included.
#15 Striking Vipers s5e1 Friends get intimate in video game I thought this idea was brilliant and explored well throughout the episode. Performances were stellar. This one got my hopes up for the overall season, but that letdown has probably shaded my thoughts a little more negatively upon reflection. I'm glad that when the guys got into a fight near the end, one didn't accidentally kill the other as that trope is well worn in similar stories.
#14 Hated in the Nation s3e6 #DeathTo On paper, this one should be one of my favorites. Killer robot bees targeting people who spew hate online. Maybe its the long-running time, but something about this one doesn't keep me locked in throughout. Hoping it gets better on rewatches.
#13 Black Museum s4e6 Museum of Black Mirror artifacts Remember when only that song connected Black Mirror episodes? Feels like a long time ago. When I first saw this one, I was thrilled to see all the easter eggs. But it's a bit too much, no? Especially in this season full of them. The vignettes are at least interesting in this one, but I guess I'm a bit deflated I didn't enjoy this one more.
#12 Nosedive s3e1 Rate your personality Honestly, it may be the show's most poignant execution of an idea. I mean, it's even permeated the subreddit with the rankings by the name. It's a distillation of the existential dread social media has come to represent in society. Good performances throughout. A great episode that probably should serve as newcomer's intro to the show, I think.
#11 Shut Up and Dance s3e3 Hacker blackmail I considered making this one my HOTTEST TAKE because I know some consider it the best in the entire series. But I think the ranking is fair because I too really enjoy it. The reveal is well-earned and still satisfying even though it's incredibly fucked up. Alex Lawther really gives a great performance.
#10 Be Right Back s2e1 Android replacement for lost loved one I'm gonna say Hayley Atwell and Domhnall Gleeson give the best performances of the series in this one. Grief, anger, acceptance. It's all handled beautifully. No complaints on this one; just well-executed and pleasantly heartbreaking.
#9 Bandersnatch special Choose-your-own-adventure HOTTEST TAKE ALERT! I'm a sucker for CYOA stories so this one satisfied me in a way I never thought possible. The replayability, though, suffers a bit as the perceived variety isn't on par with what I hoped or expected. The story is decent if not a bit rough in parts. It's my hottest take because I do see a lot fans trash it for being a letdown, so they aren't completely wrong. I have it this high on the list for the concept alone.
#8 White Bear s2e2 Mob-recorded criminal justice Or is this my hot take? I know it's several fans' favorite episode and why wouldn't it be? It such a great one with a powerful message, haunting imagery, and the dark sensibility we all cherish in the show. It's only this low because I like those ranked above it that much more.
#7 Fifteen Million Merits s1e2 Exercise bikes powering dystopian entertainment Definitely the episode that got me hooked. Felt like I was discovering a whole new world. Since it was the first written for the series, it really feels like the seed from which the rest sprouts.
#6 Playtest s3e2 Video game haunted house This ones just a lot of fun. Scary, funny, well-acted, and the twist at the end is a mindfuck. Great concept and execution.
#5 The Entire History of You s1e3 'Grain' implants A perfect blending of domestic drama and inventive tech. It feels like a real-world story that would be reasonable in a more advanced future. Also, Toby Kebbell absolutely astonishes with his performance. Memorable to say the least.
#4 Hang the DJ s4e4 Dating app matchmaking algorithm A feel good Black Mirror episode. Boy, do I enjoy those. This one kept me guessing until the end reveal. And when that song kicks in and they meet eyes across the room, that's some good shit. I suspect others won't cherish this one as much, but it's one that always makes me smile.
#3 San Junipero s3e4 Consciousness in virtual reality system The only other feel good Black Mirror episode. It's a classic, so much unlike the darkness of the rest of the series at the time of its release. It's importance and accolades are well covered at this point and this ranking is me saying I agree. Truly a reinvention of what the show's capable of achieving.
#2 White Christmas special Cookies Easily the best tech invented by the show: the cookie. It's resonated elsewhere throughout the series based on its brilliance, but it's never captured as satisfyingly as it is here in the three-part special. Everything about this one is incredible and if it's your number one episode, that makes a lot of sense. Great, great, fucking great.
#1 USS Callister s4e1 Space opera simulated reality I'm not even a Star Trek fan, but I may check it out now after seeing this episode. All the parts work so satisfyingly in this one: Plemons as a villian, funny space drama, creative/dark conceit, and a great ending. I don't think another episode will ever top it in my rankings, but if one does, it'll probably just be White Christmas reasserting its dominance.
Anyway, thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed it.
